Synopsis


Giù la Testa
Originally titled Giù la Testa, Duck, You Sucker! is a Mexican-revolution yarn, filmed in Italy by spaghetti Western maven Sergio Leone. James Coburn is top-billed as John H. Mallory, an Irish soldier of fortune with a penchant for explosives. Rod Steiger plays Juan Miranda, another mercenary who wants to utilize Mallory's specialty to blast into a bank. Despite his avaricious intentions, Miranda becomes a hero when the hole he blows in the bank wall frees dozens of political prisoners. Duck, You Sucker originally ran 150 minutes, with U.S. release prints heavily trimmed. Taking into consideration the previous "Man With No Name" films masterminded by Leone, the distributors of Duck, You Sucker! reissued the film as A Fistful of Dynamite. ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi

    Great Find

    The final 'western' from acclaimed Director Sergio Leone is a definite must see for anyone interested in the politics of revolution, western films set at the turn of the 20th century, or just fans of really well made movies. The film stars James Coburn as the irish revolutionary John and Rod Steiger as mexican lowlife Juan. It was a thrill to see this on the shelves at Best Buy. I'd been looking for it all over town. If you really want to check out some great classic films check their racks first.

    Change of tone for Leone & despite not wanting to direct it he carries off making one of the better Italian westerns.

    Amazing movie. One of the best westerns ever made. The Blu-ray price was excellent at under $10.
